There are a million ways to say thank you. Great or small they all have value.

Decide to always just say thank you whenever you see a person in uniform.

When you see a person in uniform at the coffee shop or fast food restaurant pick up their tab if you can.

At the airport trade your first class or comfort seat for their standard seat

If you have a neighbor who is deployed offer to play catch with the kids or mow the lawn. Ask how you can help

Send a care package by contacting Operation Gratitude

Donate your old cell phone

Drive a Veteran to their doctor appointments (contact the hospital services coordinator at the local VA hospital)

Write a letter

Volunteer at a VA hospital

If you run a business hire a veteran – Hire Heroes USA

Donate dollars or time to train service dogs for veterans – Patriot Paws or Puppy Jake Foundation

Build a house for a veteran – Building Homes for Heroes

Big dollars or only a few dollars, lots of time or only a little time, where there is a will there is a way to say thank you to those who serve in our military.
